Talking animals aren't my style
- Jan "Tangential, eclectic, avid listener... favorite book is the one currently in ear."
Beautiful and touching
Yes in a few year perhaps. It's good to see things from the perspective of animals as we hardly stop to think about them most of the times.
Black Beauty himself because of his spirit and his courage of character - he never did give up even in the company of fools and idiots.
Soothing voice - and gentle as Black Beauty himself.
Yes, I could have, but I like to take my time with good books - so they stay with me longer.
